WSO2 Registry 1.0 Released February 11, 2008

The WSO2 Registry team is pleased to announce the 1.0 release of the 
WSO2 Registry.


The WSO2 Registry is a hub for managing data in a web-friendly and 
community-enabled way.  It was built with enterprise metadata for SOA in 
mind, but really it's up to you - the Registry can hold any kind of 
"stuff" including images, service descriptions, text files, office 
documents... and every resource you put in the Registry becomes a center 
for social activity.

Eschewing the complexity (and WS-* focus) of specs like UDDI, our 
Registry uses the Atom Publishing Protocol (via Apache Abdera) to offer 
a standard and RESTfully simple remote interface, which can be accessed 
easily by custom code, feed readers, and even browsers.

The Registry has been designed both to encourage "grass-roots" community 
around your data and also to allow for IT-friendly governance.  A full 
feature list follows. We hope you'll find many uses for it, and that 
you'll share them with us as we work to make it even better!

The release can be obtained from:  http://wso2.org/downloads/registry

The WSO2 Identity Solution enables LAMP and Java websites to provide strong authentication based on the new interoperable Microsoft CardSpace technology, which is built on the open standards Security Assertion Mark-up Language (SAML) and WS-Trust. WSO2’s new open source security offering features an easy-to-use Identity Provider that is controlled by a simple Web-based management console and supports interoperability with multiple vendors’ CardSpace components, including those provided by Microsoft .NET. The WSO2 Identity Solution also works with enterprises’ current identity directories, such as those based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Microsoft Active Directory, allowing them to leverage their existing infrastructure. In addition to the Identity Provider WSO2 Identity Solution provides a Relying Party Component Set which plugs into the most common web servers to add support for CardSpace authentication.

How to speed up Firefox page load November 21, 2007

** Type “about:config” into the address bar, look for …




Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

** Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30.

** Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now !!
